Being a sincere individual requires strength and courage. The media, society and all of its puppets selling you inauthentic dreams and aspirations that will merely pacify you, helping to nullify the anger and pain that screams at you for not being authentic with yourself, not living up your highest ideals and morality.
There is an entire world out there waiting to tell you who you are and what you stand for so that you do not slow down to stare at yourself and ask, who am I and where am I going. We are a sold a lie every single minute of every day. It is their right to sell us that lie…but it is your right to reject that lie and choose to follow your inner faculty. This takes courage and the gift of Selfhood.
‘Tell me how a person judges his or her self-esteem, and I will tell you how that person operates at work, in love, in sex, in parenting, in every important aspect of existence – and how high he or she is likely to rise. The reputation you have with yourself – your self-esteem – is the single most important factor for a fulfilling life’ – Nathaniel Branden
What would you need to give up if you genuinely put your highest ideals to the forefront of your life? Your relationships, your job, your routines? The majority unconsciously refuse for they have no sense of inner freedom. It is far more manageable to take the metaphoric pill of nescience.
People are marching down the streets with a hammer and sickle t-shirts on, peace and love symbols everywhere, utter fucking nonsense. If all that shit worked we would be living in harmony now, the 1960s would have seen to all of this inversion. But what we have is people running around trying to fix all of these perceived problems in the world when they do not have their houses in order, and they are a complete mess.
The only person whose life you have the right to discern is your own. You have the total freedom to make any of the choices you want to make about you.
“We can accept God becoming Man to save Man, but not Man becoming God to save himself.” – Vernon Linwood Howard
For greatness, dig deep within your soul and your magical individuality. Priests, politicians and other leaders have no right to determine your physical, mental and spiritual freedom. Your own sovereignty belongs to you and you alone. You are your saviour, nobody else.
